We bought some fish at the supermarket today and that's what's for dinner. Haddock for SO. She likes it baked. Swordfish for me. I'll probably grill or pan sear it.

I shouldn't have written apple "pie". I'm planning on making Pear Tarte, but substituting apple halves. It tasted good with wedges.
It does look like pac's. The differences I see are the vinegars and one calls for sesame oil, which I love

No. I used to peel it when I used it, but then I saw a discussion here about that and decided it wasn't necessary, since I use a Microplane to grate it finely.

Cool. I was afraid the sherry wouldn't penetrate the ginger properly with the peel still on it.

I don't think it penetrates it. I think submerging the ginger in alcohol preserves it. Also, keep it in the fridge.

Haha! Just scrolling through the channels (taking Pac's advise looking for inspirational cooking shows and this jumped out at me "I Hate My Butt". Lol! It's a real program. Maybe if I am going to eat cheese and bacon, I should watch!
Thanks Pac!
